The Australian Hydrographic Office (AHO) has two executive level opportunities for Deputy Directors in the Maritime Geospatial Services and Maritime Information Services sections.

Deputy Director Maritime Geospatial Services (DDMGS) is responsible for the lifecycle support and development of the corporate Geographic Information System (GIS) on the AHO information domain.
